Neil Storey: the Norfolk Coast at War

Martham Local History Group: evening talk online


Tuesday March 16th 2021, 7.30pm –



Neil R. Storey is an award-winning social historian specialising in the study of the impact of war on British society in the first half of the 20th century. He has been writing since the late 1980s on topographical, military and crime history themes. He has written features for local and national magazines and journals as well as several books on the First and Second World Wars.


‘The Norfolk Coast at War’ is a superbly illustrated social history talk, exploring some of the events and the impact of the Second World War on the towns and villages along the coast we know and love so well. Many people of recent generations seem to have the impression the invasion threat of 1940 was focussed on the South Coast, this talk will make you think again. Norfolk was a front-line county.


We will be meeting via Zoom.  To participate please book a place by email or phone call with our Secretary, Pat Mitchell:  or 01493 749775.  Please book by midday on 11th March.


The talk is free to members, including, as a special offer, those who did not pay their membership for 2020.  


Pat will then arrange for you to receive an invitation which will give you a link to the talk. It will be important to keep this to yourself and not to share it. 


If you are a bit nervous about getting on to Zoom and how you do this, please let Pat know and we can arrange a private rehearsal for ten minutes one day before the talk, which will put your mind at rest.


The evening session will start with a welcome from the Chair, and some explanation of how this is going to work.  Neil Storey’s talk will be 50 minutes to an hour long and there will be time for questions at the end.  The evening will close at 9pm.
